I noticed something very similar on the 4WD action forum recently.

I agree it is better to delete the bad but especially anything that is good so the balance is maintained and the product isn't seen to be better than it really is.

Dave are we allowed to do very cynical good reviews instead??

Whenever you do a search for a product online, 9/10's of the time they're asking for a review of it!
However, companies that try to gag customers, need to go back to marketing-101 & relearn that 90% of sales for successful businesses come from return-customers & 'word-of-mouth' recommendations!

A simple solution to the issue is to have a 'sticky-thread' with the names of companies who for legal reasons forumites aren't to mention on the forum!?! Otherwise threads/posts are removed as requested, then someone else gives their opinion to another inquiry from someone who's done a search & found nothing. If we know there's a ban on giving honest feedback to a particular product then we wont, but we need to know.....
That said, neither is it fair to be critical of a company you've bought something faulty from, without giving them the opportunity to rectify the problem 1st!

Come to think of it, I have found little information about some campers on some of the forums for some well advertised brands.

I still think some or all of the forum should be locked off to anonymous people for reviews of equipment, block search engines seeing it.

In the web hosting world I regularly see this (I have to pass on "legal" requests to remove content, if the client doesnt within 48 hours the account is suspended)

I don't think it will be that bad, maybe scathing attacks will be frowned on. We know where we stand legally so it's not the end of the world here.
The thread in question was back in late 2010 , so it had been up for a while. Supposedly the crowd has picked their game up a bit in regard to quality. But simply I think we would have been a lot happier for them to contact us direct and not through solicitors if they had a problem with statements on this forum.

The only two sub forums the public cannot see are FAQ and Gold Class. I really don't think we need a load of people to sign up to read the forum because the whole lot is closed off and only members see it. But another one closed off for complaints could be a goer.

We, being Pajero owners and drivers, are a HUGE market for manufacturers of products such as Camper Trailers. It just seems wrong that 'we' should be gagged from providing feedback of products to other such owners and drivers. If manufacturers want to find out how their product sits in the market, then by all means read/search/troll this forum. If any feedback you find is positive, then pat yourselves on the back, increase the marketing on the product and reap the benefits. If the feedback is negative then learn from it, accept the criticism then MAKE CHANGES TO THE PRLODUCT. Don't target the customer just because he found the product to be Grossly Inadequate Crap.

It doesn't matter if its Pajero Club Forum, Pradopoint or any such site associated with 4WD owners, if you put crap on the market, word is going to get around. This is the age of social communications, you can't hide behind the thin veil of a shiny coat of paint for long, you will get found out.

Cheers,

Calspec
